Guest Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 275 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good location not for comfort The In-room air conditioning didn't cool properly so it was not comfortable at night. Noisy during our stay with a lot of activity in the hall ways at night. We only stayed one night and would probably not stay there again other than for location convenience. July 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UF Location Convenient to University of Florida. Excellent restaurant (Piesano's) Large clean pool area. Slight issue with maintenance in the shower, but problem was addressed in a timely manner and re-located to a new room. June 29, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel overall experience The overall experience was fair. The TV consistently had tiling. It was difficult to enjoy the programs. Some stations had more tiling than others. Those stations we could not watch. The air conditioning was not working properly. The room was hot which made it difficult to sleep. The phone wasn't working properly. I had to use my cell to call the front desk. These are things mgmt can fix. But aesthetically; the bathroom was small (toilet too close to the tub), the bed next to the window didn't have enough room to get out of because it was too close to the wall. The beds were comfortable and appeared clean. The college students basketball team were loud the entire time they were there. 3rd floor. June 25, 2015
